Retro Review: Miss March

Miss March is your typical screwball comedy. It kind of reminds me of those 80s screwball comedies like Up the Creek and Jocks. I still love Up the Creek for some reason. The movie opens with a two friends (Zach Cregger, Trevor Moore) hanging out watching cheerleader tryouts. One is, Tucker, who is quite oversexed…

TURKEY #4: Freddy Got Fingered

Television star Tom Green makes his directorial debut with this gross-out comedy. Green stars as Gord Brody, a 28-year-old slacker who aspires to be an animator of Hollywood cartoons. After his dreams of working for studio mogul Dave Davidson (Anthony Michael Hall) temporarily wash out, along with his thankless job at a cheese factory, Gord…

TV MADNESS #5: ANIMAL PRACTICE

It’s abysmal. I can’t believe that NBC actually previewed the pilot during the Olympics. Was this the only pilot they had finished? “Animal Practice” from NBC stars Justin Kirk  as a veterinarian who likes animals more than their owners. It also stars Tyler Labine, Amy Huberman and Bobby Lee (“MADtv”). Justin Kirk deserves a better…

Retro Review: Hollywood Ending

This is Woody Allen’s third film for DreamWorks and it seems that Woody keeps getting funnier.

Waxman’s quirks boil over when his comeback comes from a place he least expected, his ex-wife Ellie…

Retro Review: Mickey Blue Eyes

Hugh Grant stretches his wings as a straight-arrow British auctioneer who falls in love with the daughter of a mob boss. Grant’s enigmatic style and comic timing has pushed him to the forefront of Hollywood’s romantic comedy leading men. In Mickey Blue Eyes, he delivers a reason why Hollywood has taken notice of his British…

Retro Review: Town & Country

If you are expecting high octane excitement then you are definitely watching the wrong movie. “Town & Country” is one of those ensemble cast films that looks absolutely brilliant on paper but falls flat when it finally unfolds. This ensemble consists of Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton, Nastassja Kinski, Andie MacDowell, Jenna Elfman, Charlton…

Retro Review: The Animal

Belly laughs, squeals, cackles and hooting are just some of the sound that erupted from the audience when “The Animal”, Rob Schneider’s latest goofy comedy flashed across movie screens. With that in mind, I did have to wonder who were the actual animals. Rob Schneider plays police officer Marvin Mange who miraculously walks away after…

Retro Review: Heartbreakers

What do you get when you take the hilarious comedy classic, “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” and place women in the lead roles instead of men. You get Heartbreakers!! Sigourney Weaver, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ray Liotta, Jason Lee and Gene Hackman star in Heartbreakers. Hewitt and Weaver are a mother-daughter team of con-artists who love to pick…
